Facebook

« Back to Glossary Index

Facebook.com is just one of the massive social media networking services that was exposed for the unconstitutional, illegal and massive electronic surveillance of Americans via PRISM. A for-profit corporation based out of California, Facebook was started in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg and his college roommates, who stole the idea from the original founders, a group of three Harvard seniors, Cameron & Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra, who had just finished building a very similar social network one week earlier, called HarvardConnection.com. Zuckerberg was sued for stealing their idea, which he originally called FaceMash, and settled later for over a $1,000,000 in Facebook shares (now worth $300 million at FB’s IPO).

Not only did Zuckerburg steal the idea, he stole information for his original website by illegally hacking into protected areas of the computer network at Harvard and copying student’s private dorm ID pictures. Zuckerberg was charged by the Harvard administration with breach of security, violating individual privacy rights, and violating copyrights. He also faced expulsion from Harvard. Zuckerberg quickly received investment money from PayPal and later Palantir co-founder Peter Thiel. The technology and programming code that underlie Facebook, (…and Gmail, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) runs on Leader Technologies’ intellectual property developed by Michael McKibben but stolen by Zuckerberg and his deep state handlers and disseminated through the IBM Eclipse Foundation.

This was the biggest theft in the Facebook saga (and the biggest in tech history), as it was stolen by a group of deep state criminal lawyers, judges, spies and bankers working with complete impunity and in total disregard for the law. Under the guise of the IBM Eclipse Foundation, James P. Chandler III (who was a national security advisor and top White House attorney) led the group of criminals who, interestingly enough, are also appearing in the news currently due to their most recently discovered crimes, along with John Podesta, Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, John Breyer, James Breyer, Larry Summers, Yuri Milner, Alisher Usmanov, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and a host of others who are not so well known.

James P. Chandler was one of the key leaders of the tech-cartel that has grown into a completely corrupt system of theft, extortion, and fraud on a global scale. As national security advisor and top White House attorney, he not only conducted personal industrial espionage for his own gain, but also wrote patent laws, acts of Congress, and executive orders that are the framework for the “legal” theft of America’s inventions as well as the illegal surveillance of Americans.

Zuckerberg, like a host of other fake tech-lords, became the front-man for the deep states weaponized social media with built-in back doors to the stolen technology so they can control and manipulate. Zuckerberg and these fake front-men along with their pseudo-military corporations and corrupt defense contractors then magically become the largest corporations in the world – Facebook (NSA and CIA programs), Google (NSA), Amazon (NSA and CIA) and on and on down the line of the huge tech corporations that are consuming everything around them in league with the ill-intent of the military and intelligence agencies.

Since Facebook and Zuckerberg’s platform back Big Government, the national illegal NSA domestic spying program, and big corporation motives, most grass roots companies, natural medicine news, and alternative and conservative news are typically distorted, edited out, or simply blocked and blacklisted by Facebook in the name of ‘fake news’. This is contrast to what McKibben and his software engineers had planned, which was a moral system that respected personal property and privacy and envisioned a new “age of freedom of information.” While Leader Technologies assumed that the government might want to use their invention, they had no way of knowing that the government intended to use it for the exact opposite moral purposes: to take away the user’s freedom and surveil everything in their lives.

However, thanks to a thieving government, it was turned into a dark web of pornography, gambling, haters, and total military surveillance. The Internet that we once thought to be a harmless digital tool for greater communications became, in the end, the global network of control of industry, commerce, education, and our personal lives.  Most American’s lives would change drastically without the social network scalability invented by Leader Technologies. 

History

Mark Zuckerberg was funded indirectly by the CIA via Peter Thiel. Thiel is a cofounder of PayPal with Elon Musk of Tesla fame. Thiel invested $500,000 into Facebook but supposedly this was a CIA investment. Thiel is very close to the CIA. His company Palantir, supposedly worth some $20 billion, runs secret algorithms for the CIA and other intel agencies. It was just the subject of a Daily Mail story here. 

The second round of funding into Facebook ($US12.7 million) came from venture capital firm Accel Partners. Its manager James Breyer was formerly chairman of the National Venture Capital Association, and served on the board with Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel, a venture capital firm established by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1999. One of the company’s key areas of expertise are in “data mining technologies”. Breyer also served on the board of R&D firm BBN Technologies, which was one of those companies responsible for the rise of the internet.

Dr Anita Jones joined the firm, which included Gilman Louie. She had also served on the In-Q-Tel’s board, and had been director of Defence Research and Engineering for the US Department of Defence. She was also an adviser to the Secretary of Defence and overseeing the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is responsible for high-tech, high-end development.

It was when a journalist lifted the lid on the DARPA’s Information Awareness Office that the public began to show concern at its information mining projects. Not surprisingly, the backlash from civil libertarians led to a Congressional investigation into DARPA’s activity, the Information Awareness Office lost its funding. Facebook became the IAO’s new mask. Parts of the IAO’s technology round-up included ‘human network analysis and behaviour model building engines’, which Facebook’s massive volume of neatly-targeted data gathering allows for.

D.A.R.P.A. runs the Information Awareness Office whose task it is to collect data on as many people as possible. Their website is full of references to the war on terror, terrorism and terrorist. The IAO claims its programs are for identifying and responding to threats of terrorism. Facebook is an extension of the IOA.

I.A.O.’s Mission Statement:

Information Awareness Office is to gather as much information as possible about everyone in a centralized location for easy perusal by the United States government.

Including but not limited to: internet activity, credit card purchase history, airline ticket purchases, car rentals, medical records, educational transcripts, drivers license, utility bills, tax returns and any other available data.

Facebook’s own Terms of use state: “by posting Member Content to any part of the Web site, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to Facebook an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license to use, copy, perform, display, reformat, translate, excerpt and distribute such information and content and to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such information and content, and to grant and authorize sub-licenses of the foregoing.

And in its equally interesting privacy policy: “Facebook may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the Facebook service through the operation of the service (eg. photo tags) in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalized experience. By using Facebook, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.”

How the Deep State Turned Social Media into Spyware: With CIA Stolen Software!

The U.S. court-proven facts are that Columbus, Ohio innovator, Michael McKibben, and the company he founded, Leader Technologies, invented social networking in the late 1990’s. Prior to that, McKibben had re-built AT&T’s email system in record time for release with Microsoft’s much ballyhooed Windows 95.

In 6, Leader was awarded its first patent. However, once the Deep State learned about Leader’s invention from an unscrupulous patent attorney and adviser to IBM and the NSA, they wanted it so badly they broke many laws to get it. The invention enabled them to create “The Internet of Things” or “The Internet of Everything” where they could permanently control the digital economy in all its aspects: communications, banking, law, energy, finance, elections, defense, technology, communications, media, healthcare, education, entertainment, politics, guns, food, environment and news.

As the dark side of the US government ramped up its surveillance of every form of electronic communication in the 1990s, they quickly ran into a data storage and extraction problem—the size and magnitude of coordinating trillions of phone calls and emails with people tracking databases became overwhelming. Social Media had not yet been invented but the exponential growth of the internet itself demanded a totally new paradigm of dealing with massive data interaction. After being hired by AT&T to revamp their growing email system, a small company named Leader Technologies of Columbus, Ohio saw the problem and began to devise a new database management system that would become the backbone of search engines. Leader integrated voice, streaming media and data systems for collaboration and decision making in a unique way that used far less resources than file based database systems, and it became the perfect vehicle for social media networking and, interestingly, NSA spying. Leader Tech spent more than $10 million and 145,000 man-hours to invent this technology and get it patented. The Deep State stole this technology (much like the PROMIS software) and gave it to Google, Cisco, IBM, Facebook, and the NSA in order to facilitate Orwellian surveillance on a massive scale.

Free access to this software is the primary reason why all major social media companies now act as spies for big government. They got a major leg up on the competition by being given free access to this dynamic stolen technology. When Michael McKibben led Leader Tech’s team to develop this original software they designed it to have a configurable sliding scale on privacy so that companies that purchased it could determine how much privacy they would allow their users to have.

That privacy configuration was set to zero by the Deep State, and as part of their secret sharing deal, all social media like Google, Facebook and Twitter had government back-doors built into the “Leader2Leader” software that allows the NSA full access to all information.

Facebook started the social media revolution using this stolen software. Compare the massive amount of time and money it took Leader Tech to develop complex software (about 3 years) with Mark Zuckerberg’s facile claim that he built the whole Facebook platform in “one to two weeks” while studying for finals. As Michael McKibben said, “Anyone with expertise in software development would know that Zuckerberg could only have done that so quickly with Leader’s source code.”

But how Zuckerberg got the source code is the core of this story. He didn’t steal it himself. He was selected as a government “cut out” to receive the code and integrate it into Facebook so that the social media giant could be used by government to build databases on every Facebook user. And it wasn’t just Zuckerberg. The government fed this software to others in Silicon Valley, like Google, which allowed it to offer its search engine free of charge. This in turn allowed Google to become the most dominant force in the internet and web advertising world.

In this six part series of interviews by Americans 4 Innovation, CEO Michael McKibben explains how this technology was stolen through the government’s control of the Patent Office and a little known provision that allows government to take control of any patent they consider of importance to “national security.” For those of you who don’t have the time to wade through the 3 hours of interviews (30 minutes each), what follows is my written summary.

I admit that I don’t have the expertise nor access to the source codes in question to verify the degree of software theft or infringement claims, nor Leader’s claims to unique development of a new paradigm in database management. What I write here is based on the claims of those close to the controversy. I happen to believe they are true, but this is mostly based upon what I see as common patterns of Deep State coverup and conspiracy playing out here.

McKibben’s first mistake was to hire the most prominent establishment experts in the field of patents and security and even made them directors of the company. McKibben said,

“We engaged two world renowned patent and security experts as our first two directors. One was Professor James P. Chandler, author of the Economic Espionage Act of 1996 and the Federal Trade Secrets Act and a member of President Clinton’s National Infrastructure Assurance Council, and another was Major General James E. Freeze (US Army, ret.), former chief of the US Army Security Agency [and #3 man at the NSA]. Both gentlemen have consulted to Congress and the Judiciary many times. We followed their advice meticulously.”

Chandler’s role in writing deceptive government regulations (allowing for government to spy even while claiming it doesn’t) and Freeze’s role at the NSA should have rung warning bells in McKibben’s head, but he was not yet aware of the Deep State. He should have known better, as the Deep State often controls those who are in high position at universities, the media and attorneys at law. Professor Chandler also happened to be Hillary Clinton’s mentor in the patent law field. McKibben is now all too painfully aware of the dark side of government and the courts.

Part of following Chandler’s “meticulous advice” resulted in Chandler’s participation in Leader Tech’s invention design sessions in Columbus, Ohio where he learned the technical details of Leader’s social networking innovations. During that period between 1998 and 2004, Leader had also retained the legal counsel of Fenwick and West, as well as Chandler’s, on patent law in preparation for filing the patent.

All three of these entities betrayed their client and transferred Leader’s source code to the Deep State, using a unique IBM corporate foundation entitled the Eclipse Foundation, formed in November of 2001, two months after 9/ll. It claims to be a promoter of “open source” software tools, but it leveraged all of these tools on stolen Leader technology. James P. Chandler himself was a founding member of IBM’s Eclipse Foundation. IBM has been working for the CIA for decades and was a logical choice to act as a conduit for the theft of this software. Its other principals read like a who’s who of globalist tech firms, who all enriched themselves by investing in the development of Facebook and its initial public stock offering.

Larry Summers, former globalist economic advisor to President Obama, and President of Harvard University was also a founding member of the Eclipse Foundation. He was deeply involved in promoting Zuckerberg while at Harvard. The Harvard Crimson, under the direction of Harvard President Summers, carried its first article about 19-year old sophomore Mark Zuckerberg titled “Not-so-artificial Intelligence.”

Red Hat, Borland, Rational Software were founding members of IBM’s Eclipse (all clients of Chandler and Fenwick and West) as were Morgan Stanley, IBM, Credit Suisse, Oracle, and Google.

Why would “for profit” software companies join a non-profit foundation promoting free open source software that competed directly with them? Only because the open source software Eclipse was giving away to insider corporations had been stolen from Leader Technologies which gave them all access to the core software engine that would allowed them all to advance their own internet and cloud technologies.

According to The Eclipse Foundations meeting minutes, they released version 1.0 of the Eclipse “open source” software on Mar. 06, 2002—the same moment that Leader Technologies placed its source code in Professor Chandler’s and Fenwick & West LLP’s custody, ostensibly as a part of their Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) project escrow.

The Eclipse board’s lawyer had to later devise language to explain why nobody at Eclipse knows where the source code came from. Sure….that’s because they couldn’t admit it was stolen. How does a large foundation not know where hundreds of pages of source code come from, from which they base their entire purpose and existence?

Chandler had deep contacts within IBM and the US Patent Office and he used this relationship to get IBM’s vice president and assistant general counsel on intellectual property law, David J. Kappos named as head of the Patent Office. This was essential to the plan for Facebook’s defense at trial during this same time frame which would contest Leader’s patent, finally granted in November of 2006. The system is rigged. McKibben said,

“Had I known all this, I never would have filed for a patent—just like Coke, who has kept its formula a secret rather than patent it. The patent office has become a feeder process to get the best military and spy ideas into the military-industrial complex without paying. Any patent can be denied on National Security grounds and the inventor enjoined from using it or marketing it.

In fact, it was Professor James Chandler that wrote several acts of Congress that provided for these breaches of patent protection. In October, 1996 attorney professor James Chandler wrote the Economic Espionage Act and the Federal Trade Secrets Act and the False Statements Accountability Act (which prohibits lying to congress or any federal agency. But section B of the act exempts lawyers when testifying on national security issues before the courts.

Facebook has been the subject of many lawsuits by persons involved in the initial idea of Facebook, which Mark Zuckerberg has settled out of court. But lawyers for Facebook went all out to keep from having to pay Leader Tech as the actual source of Facebook code. When Leader finally filed suit against Facebook for patent infringement, McKibben and his team got a real education in how the Deep State controls the courts.

With a new legal firm, Kramer Levin, Leader Tech won a partial verdict against Facebook for patent infringement. During the trial many legal irregularities were documented, including the refusal of the judge to allow Leader to obtain testimony from Professor Chandler and General Freeze. The court was protecting these two insiders from having to perjure themselves on the stand for facilitating the theft of Leader source code.

During the discovery process Facebook claimed that the 28 original hard drives that contained their source code couldn’t be found. Those hard drives would have proven that Leader’s source code was on them. But those same 28 hard drives later appeared for another trial against Facebook, though they were never searched. According to investigative journalist Donna Klein,

Facebook dragged its feet on discovery throughout the first six months of 2009. For example, Facebook would say they would not provide a document, but when Leader filed a motion to compel the document, Facebook would then provide the document in their opposition to the motion —the very document that they had just said they would not provide. Leader had provided two-and-a-half times more documents to Facebook than Facebook provided to Leader.

She also noted that in a Facebook countersuit against Yahoo.com,

Two things are notable about the countersuit. (1) Facebook uses two of its questionable patents as the foundation of its countersuit, and (2) they are using the same Cooley Godward LLC attorneys that pulled all the shenanigans in Leader v. Facebook

The issue Klein is referring to is that in Facebook’s patent, the company failed to mention “prior art” which are other patents that precede your patent that must be distinguished from your application–such as Leader’s patent. The fact that the Patent Office let Facebook get a patent without even mentioning Leader’s prior patent covering the same material indicates Patent office corruption or control. Normally failure to recognize “prior art” results in an automatic rejection from the Patent Office.

The second point has to do with the unethical conduct of the Cooley law firm that betrayed Leader Tech before Leader fired them. Democrat Donald K. Stern, partner at Cooley Godward LLP, was appointed to the Obama justice transition team. He eventually recommended the appointment of Judge Leonard P. Stark to be inserted into the trial of Leader v. Facebook despite his conflict of interest in working for the Cooley-Godward law firm. There was a quick “recess appointment” to avoid confirmation hearings.

When Stark took over the case, he allowed the new but completely false Facebook on-sale bar claim to deny Leader discovery and failed to disclose his serious conflict of interest. During the Leader v. Facebook pre-trial discovery process, Facebook was asked to provide technical, financial and marketing information from Facebook’s formative days at Harvard in 2003-2004 forward. This would have shown infringement. However, despite four motions to compel, Facebook denied access to all of this information, and judge Stark would not compel them.

Despite all of this bias, in July of 2010, the Jury handed down a split verdict mostly in favor of Leader, confirming that Facebook infringed on 11 out of 11 patent issues brought before the court. On appeal, all of that infringement was nullified on a technicality which held that Leader held its software for sale for more than one year before filing for patent protection, which invalidates a patent. However, this ruling was based on a complete misreading of Leader’s deposition when they were asked by Facebook’s lawyer whether there was any sale pending of Leader2leader software. Leader answered in the affirmative, naming the company.

Facebook then used that statement as a basis for claiming that Leader had committed to a sale BEFORE applying for the patent, which by Patent rule bars the granting of a patent. In fact, this sale had been committed to after the patent was applied for, but the Facebook lawyer had never inquired as to the date. He simply claimed that since Leader had contracted a sale, it invalidated the patent. Incredibly the court accepted that argument. One of the judges stated in oral arguments that it was Facebook’s responsibility to specifically inquire as to the date of past issues, but that comment was never mentioned in the final ruling in favor of Facebook.

The entire timeline and details are found at the website Facebook Coverup.

Sadly, despite all these actionable legal irregularities, the US Supreme Court declined to hear the case on final appeal, confirming to McKibben that the entire system is rigged. Indeed it is.

Leader, out of futility, is now trying to induce the government to mandate shared royalties for Leader and all other users like cellphone apps, Facebook, Google and Twitter, with a percentage going to the government to reduce the deficit. I don’t think it will work. The Deep State is too evil to give in.

Facebook has also admitted to spying on its Messenger app: Facebook Messenger scans photos and links sent by users on the messaging platform. According to Breitbart,

Facebook released the statement which states that messages on Facebook’s Messenger platform are analyzed for violation of Facebook’s conduct policies. If they are flagged by the automated system, they are then read by moderators. If the content is deemed in violation of Facebook policy, the moderator is then permitted to taken action.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg himself has admitted to monitoring Messenger conversations. “In that case, our systems detect what’s going on,” Zuckerberg said in an interview with Vox. “We stop those messages from going through.”

Facebook Messenger does not automatically provide end-to-end encryption. Users must activate “secret conversations” on the Messenger platform in order to take advantage of encryption. Through end-to-end encryption, only participants in a conversation are able to read the messages that are exchanged.

Facebook has added a video-calling feature to its standalone Messenger app in a bid to take on Skype, Apple’s FaceTime and other messaging apps. This app has facial scanning technology users gleefully engage in because it’s fun to add bunny ears and a nose to your conversation as well as other cartoon visuals considered entertainment, but contributes to the data added to ever individual dossier created by the deep state to be used to track your every move in the global spy grid.

Censorship:

Google has decided to make itself the arbiter of what is “true” and what is “false,” placing alternative media in the cross-hairs of its war on free speech and the free flow of information. There are hundreds of examples of Facebook censoring alternative news with investigative journalists exposing the lies of mainstream (fake news) media as well as conservative media.

Facebook pays low-wage foreign workers to delete certain content based upon a censorship list. For example, Facebook deletes accounts created by any Palestinian resistance groups. When attempting to share videos by Infowars and by social commentators E.T. Williams and Mark Dice, Facebook users received error messages preventing them from sharing the videos even though they were able to share videos from other, non-political YouTube channels.

“I clicked on ‘Share’ at the bottom of YouTube as usual to post [the latest Alex Jones Show] to my Facebook profile to share it with various people from back home [in England,]” Infowars viewer Chris C. said. “Normally it goes straight through, but Facebook gave this error message stating ‘bad content’ or something of that nature.”

In late 2012, for example, Facebook suspended at least 20 accounts operated by individuals in alternative media during a 24 hour period, claiming they violated “Facebook policies,” not long after threatening to close the official Alex Jones account over an image of Osama Bin Laden with the words “Al-CIA-da” written underneath.

In March 2014, Facebook began censoring pro-gun speech on its social media site in partnership with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg who hates self-defense and the Second Amendment. After Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action pressured Facebook to censor gun-themed fan pages, the company finally agreed to do so on both its namesake site and its photo-sharing subsidiary Instagram. Facebook enacted this censorship through various policy changes which effectively treats gun-related content no different than pornography, such as restricting users under 18 from seeing the official Facebook pages of their neighborhood gun shops.

Documents released by the Washington Free Beacon in January 2017 revealed that “the left-wing propagandist group Media Matters for America is secretly working behind the scenes with Facebook to combat so-called fake news.” Media Matters is heavily funded by billionaire George Soros and owned by far left liberal activist David Brock.
